Venice, CA(Hollywood Today)11/18/12/—Baron Wolman-Rolling Stone’s First Photographer-opened his new gallery Saturday night. The reception was packed with Rockers, Photography Lovers and many beautiful women and handsome men. Wolman visited with his guests and graciously posed for photos including with this reporter.
I’ve admired Wolman throughout my photography career and gleaned some useful advice during our meeting. I mentioned that I liked his photograph of Steve Miller. Wolman told me that during that photo-shoot there happened to be a feather lying around and Wolman asked Miller to hold the feather over his eye. Of course this photo became the Anthology album cover. The lesson here is ‘find a prop, and go with whatcha got’.
One of my favorite photos is of Mick Jagger holding a Polaroid camera. Other outstanding photos at the gallery include those of Janis Joplin, Pink Floyd, Johnny Cash (smoking a cigarette), Jerry Garcia showing off his 1/2 finger, and a Jimi Hendrix collage. Of special interest is a display of Wolman’s photos along side Rolling Stone magazine covers in which the photos appeared.

Hollywood,CA(Hollywood Today)11/18/12/—”Thirty years ago I was at a Stevie Nicks concert at the Met Center in a suburb of Minneapolis, MN. I was armed with my first camera a $100 Minolta (remember film?) and after I shot that concert I realized something about myself; I was a music photographer. Today many images, photographs, paintings, drawings, sculpture and other art forms are seen on computer.
I would love you to see my photographs and read my stories in something tangible you can hold, something printed on paper, something special called Rock ‘N’ Roll Lens.” Jimmy will donate a buck a book to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. It is Jimmy’s first published book and is now available for you to purchase through this site.
The book is a collection of his most popular images including: Michael Jackson, Eric Clapton, Tina Turner, Paul McCartney and Madonna. Jimmy has included personal anecdotes about the musicians which will give you a unique perspective on his 30 year career.
